Little Crafts Project

Went to London on Tuesday with Penny (Natural Attrill) and her son Toby. Before we met up with the two of them at the V&A Ben and I went to Covent Garden to look at all the craft stalls and have some lunch.

Couldn't resist to buy some things. One of the things I bought was a little box with wafer thin soap roses in white, that smell of lavender and lemon.

The other thing was a mobile of pink perspex butterflies. I hung it up on the curtain pole next to my computer and it looked very pretty, but very lonely. So, I decided to play with my new laminator, some rose and peony petals from the garden, handmade and tissue paper and invisible string - oh, and because it's me, there had to be some beads, too.

Here's a picture of what I made - light wasn't brilliant, but I think you can still see. The one I bought in London is in the middle.

Here are a couple of close-ups:


  1. very nice these, ever thought of going into leaded stain glassy things of a similar nature.
    Just wanted to prove that we'd been here!

  2. I love the petals they are beautiful.
    It was good to meet up with you both in London!
